EDITORIAL. AMoNG the evideuces of new life in tbe college is the iuterest that is beiug awakened in the college library. Over a hundred new books were added during vacation, and a number more are to be placed on the shelves in the near future. If auyone thought of complaiuiug when a dollar matriculatiou fee was charged on entrance last fall, let him look to the library for results and hold his peace. It has been many a long year since any valuable addition has been made to the collilge library, aside from statistics aud reports. Let the student body h~il with delight this movement in a right ~irection, and gi-ve it their most hearty support. A FEW students are in the habit of returning to school a week or two late. The faculty have been very liberal in allowing those

No. 5·

whose average q.aily- grade is above eighty-five per cent to go home before examinatiohs, but they did not inte?d that this rule should be applied at both ends of the vacation , In order that this tardiness may be reduced 'to a minimum, they have decided that thoae who come in late will be required to make up privately all back work. This has caused the faces of some to lengthen very perceptibly. The only consolation we can ofFer is that "the way of · transgressors is bard." librarian placed a number of notices in the library some time ago that ought to have a special significance. The card contains the simple word "Silence," which we think very app1·opriate. The general order in library and reading room has been very good with the exception of a little loud talk occasionally. The notice is a gentle reminder to those who are careless along this line, and the improvement is very marked. A reading room is not a place for social intercourse, nor for concerted study of any regularly assigned lesson. The student who is not entirely encased in a coat of selfishness needs only to be reminded that he is \nterfering with the investigations (,f fellow students. Thought and care will bring about an ideal condition. THE

OuR aim is not only to keep our readers in touch with the presen~ life of the school, but also to give informatio~ C01nce~~ing those who have gone out from our halls. In order that our alumnal column may be full and interesting, we earnestly request the alumni to send in any items of interest or news.

'l'he minimum charge, as ordered. by the society, will be ten dollars for each lecture, and the maximum charge twenty dollars a lecture, besides the traveling and incidental expenses of the lecturer. Between these limits a lecturer may fix his own prices. It is anticipated that the university extension work will d.o much to popularize college and university methods, as well as to elevate the standard of intelligence throughout the land.

SCIENCE TEACHING IN SMALLER COLLEGES. College courses the world over are strikingly alike in essentials. This similarity is not difficult to understand when it is remembered that the college "idea," the attaining of a higher education, has borne to a remarkable degree, if indeed it did not court, transplanting. In whatever soil it found lodgment, it was not a spontaneous product, but a scion of some not far off stock, whose ancestry can be traced from stock to stock through most of the Christian era, if not beyond. 'l'he one avowed purpose of the college curriculum was to secure for those' who pursued it a liberal education; that is, a non -professional, non-technical education, which might form a proper foundation for any kind of superstructure. The modern system of elective studies offered to undergraduates seems likely to modify this idea to the extent at least of permitting the foundation to be shaped with a view to the superstructure. The end sought in a liberal education is twofold : first, to develop certain intellectual powers; second, to gain a good equipment of useful knowledge. President D. C. Gilman, in a recent address, especially emphasizes fivE)

intellectual powers which every liberally euucated person should _possess, viz.: First, the power of concentration; that is, the ability to hold the mind exclusively and persistently to the subject which demands attention. Second, the power of distribution; that is, the ability to arrange and classify one's intellectual possessions. Third, the power of retention; that is, the ability to hold tenaciously and remember what has been learned, and to reproduce it readily when occasion arises for its use. Fourth, the power of expression, or the power to state one's thoughts orally or by pen so as to reach the minds of others. Fifth,- the power of judging, discriminating,-the power which differentiates the wise from the unwi se. The powers here named and defined by President Gilman do not differ essentially from those universally conceded by scholars and teachers to be sought in every educational scheme and system. To secure this result, a curriculum is planned to be progressive and logical, and any serious departure from it on the student's part interferes with what is believed to be the best method of securing a harmonious development of the intellectual powers. It is doubtless true that any department of study found in a college curriculum, to the exclusion of all others, might be so extended and developed as an instrument of education as to secure the ability defined in the five powers above named. But one so educated, if his reading were not extensive and along lines widely difi"e rent from his study, would be decidedly one-sided, and so unfitted for mingling among men and influencing them. It is the latter consideration evidently that demands varl.ety of study in the curriculum and determines what the variety shall be. Often, no doubt, well qisciplined mental power is partially sacrificed for breadth of knowl-

It would be well if the college could off'er a full year's work in chemistry, and enough quantitative work should be done before completing thi s course to emphasize duly the foundation principle of chemistry,-that of definite combining proportions. This would involve an outfit of instruments of precision,even fairly good ones are expensive,-but the method of teaching proposed is not complete without them. In physics, except the most elementary work, the laboratory method is likely to be beyond the means of the small college. If I the library is sufficiently complete to permit it, the scientific spirit may be cultivated, k ept alive at any rate, by frequent refe:ence to the authorities who have contributed to produce our modern physical science, together with more or less extended accounts of experiments and investigations barely alluded to in the text. In the class of colleges in contemplation the results of the study of physics must consist very largely in contributions to the student's knowledge rath er than in a decided enlarging of his intellectual powers. Even in this view of the matter the subject cannot be dispensed with, on account of its important practical applications in the affairs of life. Without question there is room for improvement of science teaching in the av~rage small college. Too often it does not yield results either in mental discipline or accuracy of information commensurate with the time and labor expended. On the other hand, the small college should not aspire to do in scien ce the work of the university and technical school. 'l'o aspire may be to pretend, and pretense throw s the shadow of discredit over all the work.

A BICYCLE TOUR IN EUROPE. BY L. E. CUSTER, D.D.S.

Custer, ' 84. We are better known as Fred, Irv, John, and Doc. If we were to visit a cathedral, the last, by virtue of his seniority, was called the chaperon, or if a bicycle was to be repaired, he was called the "forgeron." 'l'he trip was planned when three of us entrapped and disappointed bicyclers sat under a shed almost a whole afternoon waiting for a rain-storm to subside. The most important matter in our preparations was the selection of our bicycles. After looking the ground over, notwithstanding the splendid opportunity of buying an English wheel, we concluded to purchase each a" Century Columbia," and from that day we have been cong ratulating ourselves on the wisdom of that choice. B esides the small straps on the handles, we had leather valises, or luggage carriers, made to fit in the framework between the wheel s. These were large enough to hold a suit of clothing, t oilet ar ticles, repairs, and a few books (Bibles, etc.) . We conjointly owned a No. 3 Jr. Kodak, and took turn s of a week each carrying it. With th ese preparation s, and a steame r trunk filled with rugs and heavy clothing for the voyage, we sailed May 25 on the next to the last trip of the ill-fated City of Chicago. The voyage was rough, and there was not one of us but did the proper amount of eating and immediately regretting it, and we were heartily glad when the voyage came to an end. Upon our arrival at Liverpool Saturday, Jun e 5, at 4 P.M., owing to the late hour Fred was sent by cab to secure us some English money, while the rest looked after the bicycles and trunk.

H e was a tall man, and bit the drum as though he were mad at it, and between strok es flourished the stick high in t he air, bringing it down each time with a fresh vengeance. All was done in perfect time and coolness, as is their custom. We were anxious to get on our wheels again, so lost no time in setting out . At about eleven o'clock we became very h ungry, and stop ped for refreshment at our first

After ·a night's rest at Newport, such as is mendation than was given it that day by those enjoyed only by a bicycler, we prepared to expert English cyclers. The races, being the leave, but here we were again confronted with first any of us had ever seen, were quite excitthe money _question. There was a bank here, mg. The track is about one-fourth mile but it was· not marked on our lettet·s of credit; around, fifteen feet wide, and at the short however they kindly exchanged our American turns the outside is raised at an angle of permoney, and we proceeded.

We at once (twenty miles) by our friend whom we first accepted his invitation to attend. Although met. He made the trip doubly interesting by we had noticed that all the bicyclists we had pointing out . all objects of interest along passed wore their coats, we thought nothing the way.

0 TTERBEIN ./EGIS. THE MOST DELIGHTFUL RIDE IN ALL ENGLAND.

t f

Now here else in Europe can there be found such an interesting country as that between Birmingham and Stratford on Avon. We were just getting into good riding condition, the roads were perfect and just hilly enough to relieve the monotony, and almost every inch 路of land was historical. Here and there all over those hills were to be seen castles and abbeys. It seemed like one grand park. 'rhe road for miles would be shaded by ro'ws of elm trees whose branches would meet. At noon we arrived at Coventry, whose chief industry is the manufacture of bicycles. As ill fate would have it, this was another English holiday and all the shops were closed, but through the kindness of the Rudge people we were shown through their works. We spent almost two hours in continuous walking and then did not see all the plant. We followed the raw material to the beautifully enameled wheel. Probably the most interesting of all is the manufacture of the steel balls for the ball bearings. A rod of steel a little larger than the finished ball is rapidly revolved in a lathe, and with a skilled hand and sharp chisel balls at路e cut from the end. 'l'hey are then made true by rolling between two emery wheels revolving in opposite directions, then sorted and gauged. All this work is done by boys and girls. After a luncheon we departed fot路 Kenilworth. On the way we conjointly refreshed ourselves from Scott. The road was a cycler's paradise. It is so beautiful that it is customary for tourists to ride this in carriages instead of by rail. It is perhaps one hundred and fifty feet wide, and on either side is a row of great elms. On this hot afternoon we were cool in the deep shade. In half an hour we arrived .:..t Kenilworth, and spent two hours in and about the most interesting ruins in all England. We were repaid then for all our trouble with the Kodak, for our best pictures to-day are of old Kenilworth.

13

'l'he road to Warwick was a continuation of the same good highway, and arriving there, we found the city in an uproar preparing for the Prince of Wales, who would visit there in a few days. We were only able to view Warwick Castle from a distance. After a short rest and supper we pushed on to Stratford on Avon, some ten miles distant. We arrived there in an hour, and after a bath strolled over the town. We visited the home and church of Shakespeare and wandered about through the quaint old streets till it was dark. 'l'he long duration of twilight in England was quite noticeable. It was half past nine when we returned to the hotel, and we could still recogmze persons for more than a square's distance. That day's ride was one never to be forgotten. It was such a delight to ride those roads that we sped on from one new sight to another as if we were in a dream. We met many English cyclers who were ofl on short tours, and that evening the hotel was quite crowded路 with them. We had luncheon and music and a grand time socially. Early next morning we were ofl for new sights, and we saw them sure enough before night. According as the previous day had been a dream, this was indeed a reality. It seemed that we left pleasure behind at Stratford. The roads were much like those in America, and the hills, while they relieved the monotony, were entirely too high for pleasure. 'l'he whole day was spent in climbing hills from one to three miles long. There is always another side to a hill, however, and with feet on the coasters, and ribbons (red and tan) flying, we would get in single file and go down like a flash. On good roads we would ride two and two within talking distance, but in coasting, for safety it was customary to get in single file about one hundred feet apart, and wake up the n_atives by ringing our bells and performing generally. About noon we became very hungry, and


14

OTTERBEIN /EGIS.

were only waiting to come in sight of a respectable inn, but these, like the roads, were very bad. We stopped time and again, and finally learning that the next town was ten miles distant, it seemed as if we could go no farther; so we stopped at an imitation inn, and called for the best in the house. It was like the country round about,-quite barren indeed. The best she had was a loaf of soggy bread; some rank cheese, a dish of forty-year-old apple butter, and a jar of that "hail-to-thequeen" beer. Oh for a few crumbs from home! We ate the combination of provender spread before us, and our sharp appetites really imagined they were attending a banquet. After this delightful repast we spread · oueaelves out on the side of the hill and indulged in an aftee-dinner nap. About two o'clock we were awakened by the auival of other disappointed bicyclers, and we wearily mounted the hill before us and proceeded. The eo ads gradually became better, and abou t four o'clock we rolled into classic Oxford. On I the way we passed the estate of the Duke of Marlborough. We stopped in the suburbs and watched the students playing ct·icket and tennis. Fot· probably a mile we passed one playg t·ound after anothee. We proceeded to the best hotel we could find, and ordered enough foe ten hungry cyclers. The steak bad to be cooked to order, and we were so faint that we thought we would never live to behold the imaginary morsel. B ut in due time it was served, and we left very little fo r manners' sake. Oxford is certainly a city of universities. Everywhere were to be seen college buildings, students, and bookstoees. After a liberal use of the Kodak and a general view of the city, we again set out. The ride that evening was delightful as compared with the forenoon, and we remained that night at Benzington. Early next morning we were of:!:' for London, which we expected to reach that night. After a stifi climb out of Benzington we

coasted down into the valley of the Thames. Just before reaching Hen ley we passed over a stretch of roadway kn ow n as "Henley's Fair Mile." It is probably 200 feet wide, perfectly graded, and lined on either side by a lawn of 30 feet width and then a row of elms. After a season of bad roads this was a delight and revived ou r impression of English roads. Henley is famous for the regattas. The Thames is probably 250 feet wide and is almost straight for the distance along the Fair Mile and affords splendid natural facilities for racing. Out of Henley is the stifi'est hill on the road fr-om Liverpool to London. We had ridden all the hills but this one. All fou r rode half way up, but- only J obn _and lrv finished the feat. We did not learn till afterward that this is ridden only by experts, or I have no doubt that Fred- and myself would have kept on to the top, as it was only a matter of a little hard pushing. English eiders never coast with their feet oft the pedals and always walk up hills. Our training on American roads served us well on this trip. At noon, after a bot t·ide, we arrived at Windsor. We saw the castle long before we reached the city. It is on the highest point of land for miles around. From- the tower London, some twenty mil es distant, may be seen. The queen did not know we were eoming, or she would probably have been at home, but it was fortunate she was not, fo r we were shown through the state departments of the castle. While there we heard some excellent music by one of the royal bands. After a delightful visit here, although of but a few hours, we started 011 ·ou e last bicycle ride in E ng land. It took lon ge1· to reach our hotel when in London than it did to cover those twenty miles. While the signboards read "London, 12 miles," we wer e in tbe midst of a dense population . We could hardly believe that we had twelve miles to go yet through such crowded streets befoee we


OTTERBEIN LEGIS. would be at 'l'rafalgar Square, the center. We pushed along, slipping and sliding, dodg'ing in and out, and finally in the din and bustle became separated. Fred slipped and fell, buttered side down, bending a pedal and knocking a little bark off of the prominent parts of his anatomy which struck the pavement first. A neighboring blacksmith corrected the pedal's deformity, and nature healed the wounds. Had it not been that we expected to stop at De Keyser's Royal Hotel, we might not have met again; but each one pushed on and inquired for the above hotel. Fred and Irv managed to keep together, but John and I saw no more of any of the party after five miles out. How we again met in Piccadilly no one knows. We were both walkin g and crowding between the cabs and 'busses inquit·ing for a hotel which only cabmen knew, for we were yet a mile distant. After an ho~r's jamming and crowding we found the hotel, and while discussing the possib'le fate of Fred and Irv, were relieved to see them walk in. None can imagine what a city London is till they see it, and they will never know bo w crowded it is till they endeavor to go through it on a bicycle. We had crossed England in five days in hot _weather. Our cy clometers registered two hundred and thirty-six miles from Liverpool. It was not a great feat compared with what was afterward accomplished , but as we stood there we thou,ght we owned the town, aud especially the hotel, since we had sent our trunk in advance. We boldly made our way to secure rooms, but were told we could not be accommodated. Whew! We at first thought it was on account of our appearance in cycling suits that we were so unfortunate, but we afterward learned that it was the "season" in London, when the hotels are always crowded. We next tried the Savoy, the Metropole, and a number of others with no su ccess, till finally Fred and John tried th.e ir faces at the Westminster

15

Palace Hotel, where we secured delightful rooms; and thus situated we will leave our readers for ·the present.

JUNIOR PUBLIC. The first division of the junior class appeared on public rhetorical for the first time January 14. The class, in keeping with the spirit they have manifested throughout their course, headed their programs with thei~.: motto in San sk1·it, which gave them a very classical appearance. The program was opened with a march-prelude by the college orchestra. The first who came to the platform were Mi ss Cornell and Messrs. Barnes and Shoemaker. Mr. Barnes, speaking on "The Pioneers of Modern Civilization," set forth not only the territorial advantage of foreign missionE<, but also the scientific achievements that have been made possible through them. Miss Cornell, "C9lumbus- a Panegyric,'' spoke of the achievements of the great discoverer in a way that was pleasing to all. " Silent Forces," as discussed by Mr. Shoemaker, were shown to be the strongest. The grace of his gestures and the qeauty of his sentences commanded admiration. Miss Hamilton showed a good command of her subject,--" Firmness of Principle,"~while Mr. K umler, in "The Economic Triple Alliance," disclosed his knowledge of current events. Mr. B radrick, on "The Broadening 'l'endencies of College Lif~," made a very strong plea for college training. Mr. McFadden said the only enduring thing in literature is that which is written in the . thought of th e age, and warned against that which is " Writteri in the Sand." Mr. Snavely closed the prog ram with the subject "Simple Simon," in which he denounced parasitism. On the whole, this division acquitted itself admirably, a nd causes us to expect great things from those who follow.

The weekly meetings should be attended with the same pun ctuality with which we attend our recitation s, and more, because we have no opportunity of making them up when missed. The third week in January has been appointed for the week of prayer. As a preparation to this, group prayer meetings are being held. These meetings are attended by the majority of th e boys, and are characterized by deep earnestness. With this preparation there is no reason why we may not make our week of prayer a success in every respect.

OTTERBEIN /EGIS. PERSONAL AND LOCAL. About twenty-seven new students have matriculated this term. The copversational class in German will be continued during this term. Harry Milliman has gone to Ann Arbor to take a course in civil engineering. Pennsylvania adds one more to her long list of students in the person of G. D. Gohn. Numerous sleighing parties have been taking advantage of the excellent sleighing. A number of students went to Columbus to hear Keene play "Richard III." last week. On the 71th instant the president . took a party of ladies from Saum Hall out sleighing. Professor Miller has been obliged to make two divisions of the class in beginners' algebra. Mit~ses

Knapp and Shafer, who have not been in school for some time, have resumed their work. Almost all of the old students have returned and are entering heartily upon another term's work. E. B. Reed, who was obliged to return home on account of his long sickness, is now recovering. Arthur Oldham, who was in school last year, has returned and again taken work in college. I. C. Secrist is among the old students who have thought it best to resume work in college. It may seem rather late in the season, but our football team . has had its picture taken nevertheless. The Philomathean glee club is practieing constantly, and is developing some good musical ability. F. A. Z. Kumler, '85, president of Avalon College, conducted chapel service on the morning of the 17th.

A sleighing party of students visited the home of Miss Elder, near Flint, on the evening of the 17th instant. Miss Verna Fowler, of Mt. Vernon, who was a student here last year, has been visiting friends in town recently. The freshman class is made one stronger by the return of Miss Bertha Waters, who was teaching during last term. Mr. George has been detained at home on account of sickness. As soon as he is able he will return and resume his work. W. Y. Altman, Daniel Ames, and Seymour Tracht, after being out of school for some time, are again busy with their studies. Rev. I. M. Brashea~s, of the M. E. church, cond ueted devotional exercises at the chapel on the opening moming of this term. Mr. J. R. King was presented with a very fine society pin by Prof. E. D. Resler at a session of the Philophronean literary society January 6. A number of the students from a distance spent vacation in town, entertaining themselves with skating and such other amusements as the place afFords. The two ladies' societies held private induction of officers the 19th instant, while the officers of the gentlemen's societies were installed a~ open sessions the 20th of January. The new conservatory quartet, recently organized under the direction of Professor Kinnear, is composed of Messrs. Professor Kinnear, E. D. Resler, D. Riggle, and J. Redding. New bulletin boards have been placed at the entrance of the college by the Cleiorbetean and Philophronean societies. They will be used to announce the programs for the sessions a week in advance. Professors Scott and Haywood have exchanged rooms. The room lately occupied by

ASTRONOMICAL FORECAST. To anyone wishing an easy and interesting study of the planetary motions, I recommend that he watch the planets Jupiter and Mars for a while. They are near the mer.idian at dark. They are conspicuous and cannot be mistaken for other stars. Mars, being a little west of Jupiter, is moving eastward, and passes J upiter a little after noon January 25. At the nearest point Mars ie 1 ° 36' north of Jupiter. JOHN HAYWOOD. WE notice with pleasure the interest Professor Kinnear is awakening in the musical department. The choral society is doing excellent work and is faithfully preparing for a concert to be given February 1 in the interest of the conservatory. The choral society is to be assisted by the orchestra and violin quartette. This promises to be a very fine entertainment, and we bespeak for it the most hearty support of all. THE colleges of Ohio lose a ~arm frienrl and a stanch supporter by the decease of ex-President Hayes. We highly appreciated the kindly interest he had shown in our institution, having promised to be present at the dedication of our new association building next spring. While we regret the loss of his presence among us for that occasion, we doubly regret the loss of his sympathy and counsel to the several institutions with which he was closely connected.
